Guest Post
They say to write what you know. I’ve never been a soap opera star. I’ve never even knowingly met one. But when I wrote Her Secret Life, starring soap opera star, Kacey Hamilton, I knew a little bit about what I was getting into.
Her condo is on a road in Beverly Hills that I’ve been on. I know the view. I’ve walked the streets around it. One time, when I was walking those streets, I happened upon the national premiere of the original Kung Fu Panda in 2008. 
 Seriously. It was June 1, 2008 and my husband and I were like a couple of kids let out school. We’d been in LA for an author event and had one day to play. Grauman’s Chinese theater was on our list – I’d been before, he had not. Paying no attention whatsoever to anything I didn’t want to see, I was on a mission to get him to that theater. We were standing on this red carpet, wondering why someone had set up a luscious food spread right there where we could take anything we wanted. Wondered why this huge panda balloon was flying right above our heads. And we wondered why we were the only ones around the area…
The set up crew had finished and the guests were just starting to arrive. Limos pulled up and people got out. It was Hollywood. Whatever. No one asked us to leave. No one ever even seemed to notice us. We looked at the theater and moved on to our next event. It wasn’t until later, when we heard about the movie premier, that we realized that we’d been uninvited guests!
I do have a little bit of other experience to draw on. My daughter had an agent in LA when she was young. She was a dancer and I would fly her over from Phoenix for auditions. She danced in a piece with Jerry Lewis and some other kids once for Jerry’s telethon, among other things.
 I spent time in studios. I listened. I asked questions. And some of the things I learned are on the pages of Her Secret Life. Enjoy!
